Why BIM is important for project managers in the construction industry

BIM Essentials for Project Managers

Since the introduction of Building Information Modelling to construction projects, it has added new dimensions to the construction industry. Not only has it indirectly helped to cut costs, but it helps to define practical timelines for implementation as well as cut down cross referencing and approval time during the project's construction phase. At The Big 5 Heavy taking place from 26-28 March 2018, Nicky Dobreanu will be discussing a number of important aspects relating to BIM for project managers in the construction industry. 

BIM Essentials for Project Managers
Tuesday 27th March, 13:30 - 14:15

Insights into BIM essentials including:

  • Defining good practices to cost estimations and controls from base and future estimates 
  • Taking into account cycles and allocations from schedule risks, correlations, distributions and escalations 
  • Profiling the financial model to fit the complexity in project stages and strategic objectives
